These Scalextric spares silver coloured terminal pins have a
barrel diameter of 1.75mm and were used throughout the 1990s and
beyond. These Scalextric spares pins are used to secure the wires
from the motor to the pick up braids on the guide assembly, see
the guide pictured above. This Scalextric guide blade is sometimes
referred to as G30.
Some of the earlier versions of the Scalextric G30 guide (pictured
above) have suffered from natural material creep. This is where
the plastic material has stretched over time. This means that
these 1.75mm diameter pins will appear loose and in extreme circumstances
come out under race conditions. In this situation the guide can
simply be replaced with a new guide
assembly or the larger 1.95mm
diameter pins can be used.
Please note the latest supply of these Scalextric 1.75mm guide
pins are natural brass in colour and not the traditional bright
nickel plate as indicated above. Their function and performance
is not affected with this change.
